Heroes of the Storm – Harvard University team kicked for cheating

[Source] While Harvard University is one of the top institutes of learning in the world, the latest incident reminded us the students there are just human as well. According to an official post, “Team Ambush have violated several tournament rules.” Basically, a player from the Harvard team passed his account to a better player who is not on the team during tournament matches to play as him.

The team disqualification notice further states that Blizzard Entertainment has “zero tolerance for cheating in our tournaments” and “will be taking disciplinary actions against the Battle.net accounts involved.” I am no IT whizkid, but shouldn’t a student from Harvard Universtiy at least know the dangers of such an action, and how easily tech companies can track online behaviors these days?
